I'm afraid of Americans [Sep. 12th, 2001|09:42 am]
Roy Janik
Now I just feel ill.

A few minutes ago, the town cryer came by the office declaring that the "BAGELS ARE HERE!" I gave the good man a farthing for his trouble, and headed to the break room. Once inside, I noticed there was a guy stocking the vending machines...

He was talking to no one in particular: "We just need to strike back right now. We'll just see if America has the balls to do it. Maybe with George Bush in the seat, we do. What we need to do is just kill all the Eastern type people over there. What they did was mess with the wrong country."

We're like an ant hll that's been stirred up, only not so organized.

the sad part is how many people believe like this. I can't begin to see how someone could feel that everyone is responsible for the actions of a few. Since no one is certain about who it is, we can't even begin the process of bringing them in. and yet so many people are causing more problems by generalizing a situation based on fear. Already different arabic and muslim groups around the country are taking threatining calls, emails, and even some are being beat for walking down, the street, I believe I even heard where a few were ripped from their cars. And since on of my friends comes from that part of the world, I worry that something may happen to him in this backwards little world of ours.

This is why I should run for President! Ruthless, but surgical...

My favorite here is "Nuke them all until the glow and then shoot them in the dark."
If I had been Bush though, I would have had a silver platter casually sitting on the desk with a little placard that said "Reserved for the Heads of Whomever Did This" and make sure it is within the camera's shot, but otherwise not reference it.
